Good Fans For H110 ? - Page 3

Mostly you see people wanting to upgrade the fans because the stock ones aren't exactly the most quiet ones, but since you don't mind the little noise I'm not sure if a single two set of fans would benefit you much performance wise compared to what you already have. Just my thoughts.

Thanks for that. The fans that come with the H110 are good no doubt about that but these are not the Corsair AF140 QE fans I have checked both fans specs the ones that come with the H110 have better static pressure. They must have been specially made for the H110 because they are not available separate otherwise I would have got them.

Just got the kraken x60 on order myself. I'm on the lookout for another set of good 140mm fans for cheap. So far the Rosewill looks like a good choice.

I think the Noiseblocker PK3 fans are the ones i'll be getting reason........... I had one 2 years ago when I didn't no anything about Static Pressure. rolleyes.gif Was used as a rear exhaust fan and I remember putting my hand behind the case and boy could I feel the air blowing my hand away. smile.gif

Ha nice. Yeah those fans are getting grew numbers and reviews. People say they are expensive though so Iddidn't even check them out. How much do they run?

The specs are:
Speed: 1700rpm
Airflow: 90.056CFM
Static Pressure: 1,781 mm-H2O
Noise: 27 dB(A) <<< But they are very quite on full speed

mmH2O 1.65 _______________________ 0.76

It's for a radiator, and you've missed out the important variable: static pressure. Those airflow measurements are useless since they are measured with no restrictions in airflow. When mounting on a radiator the fan motor needs good rotational force in order to drive air against its will. The Blue Vortex is a good and quiet fan for mounting as a case fan, but its motor has less than half the torque as the Noiseblocker for mounting on a rad.

Apart from that, it's obvious that one of those fans runs at 1000rpm and the other at 1700rpm. I.e. one of them sits in the quiet zone in terms of motor noise. You better compare the Blue Vortex with a NB-PK2 which runs at 1200rpm, slow enough that you don't hear the rotor. But this slower Noiseblocker still has 1.27 mmH2O which is 67% stronger than the BV14.

Last point is that those dBA measurements are not done when mounted on an actual case. The silicone decoupling frame provided with the Noiseblocker (and hence its greater price) gives it an advantage in that it soaks up any vibrations from imbalance that comes from the rotor. When I got my first Noiseblockers I thought this decoupling was a gimmick, like those stretchy silicone mounting pins you get with cheaper fans, but now I feel uncomfortable using any fans without this feature. But don't just take my word for it, try a Noiseblocker or other properly decoupled fan one day and hear what I mean.

yes, but for a price of 2 PK3s you can buy 4 BV14s, and then it's game over smile.gif
